The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. (NC100BW), Pennsylvania Chapter was chartered in 1981 and 42 members were sworn-in in 1982. The idea for the chapter was conceived on a train ride that the Pennsylvania Chapter founder and charter president, Sylvia Webster, had with Jewel Jackson McCabe, founder of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. During the train ride, Jewell convinced Sylvia that a Pennsylvania Chapter for the Coalition was needed, and Sylvia accepted the opportunity. Over the years, the Pennsylvania Chapter grew to more than 200 members. Currently, there are over 130 members from diverse professions and backgrounds.
The Mission of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. is to advocate on behalf of black women and girls to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment.
The Vision of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. is to see black women and girls live in a world where socio-economic inequity does not exist.
